Re: tsunade theory?

But he declined. He wasn't the type for that. So tsunade was the next (and only reasonable) choice then. Ero-sennin also recommende her because she was one of the sannin(sannin=good reference).
Of course she has her good qualities and is an exceptional medical shinobi. But if you compare her with the previous hokages it becomes clear that she was chosen because there wasn't really time and no one else. Besides like said already, she is shodai's granddaugther.
I mean shodai fought against uchiha madara, don't know about nidaime, sandaime fought against orochimaru, yondaime fought against tobi/uchiha madara/or both together(whatever) and then there was danzou who fought the duell of the two wal-mart (sharingan) suckers. They all had a hell of a fight. Now tsunade was up against pain. But she didn't fight, not even against tendou/yahiko. She used her (best) power to heal all the villagers. And that's fine. I am sure she helped a lot of people. She knew exactly that she didn't stand a chance against pain. Pain knew that very well. Finally that's where naruto jumped in. Honestly, pain killed jiraiya and without the help of kyuubi/yondaime the same would have happend to naruto. So let's not overrate tsunade just because she's the hokage and shodai's granddaugther.
Tsunade is o.k for now. But let's hope she doesn't encounter madara or kabuto or even sasugay alone. Then naruto really needs to be there like a (yellow) flash! And how can you bring that in: "Does anybody remember that she even almost killed Jiraiya?" Seriously, was that a fight? Ero-sennin just wanted some big boob inspiration for his novels;-)!
Remeber what young naruto said: "she's a 50-year old grandma who transforms herself into a younger version. Is it really o.k for the hokage to deceive everyone like that???"
Tsunade is godaime hokage. But things are on the move know. Naruto's time to shine will soon arrive. Then tsunade can retire like sandaime did. Let's just hope she doesn't release her henge no justu;-)!!
